James Bracey, a wicketkeeper-batsman and product of Winterbourne CC and the Gloucestershire academy, made his first-class debut for Loughborough University CC against the Australian Universities in May 2016. His Gloucestershire debut followed - as a specialist batsman - in the final Championship match of the season against Sussex at Bristol.
The following year, in spite of playing only four Championship matches, he could take pleasure in finding himself top of Gloucestersire's batting averages thanks to a career-best 156 against Glamorgan in Cardiff.
Bracey's two Championship centuries in 2018 were determined, backs-to-the-wall affairs. He lingered seven-and-a-half hours for 120 in a Gloucestershire defeat against Glamorgan at Bristol and also dug in for five-and-a-half hours for 125 against Middlesex at Lord's to save the game after Gloucestershire had followed on - two innings much out of tune with impatient times.
